Sorry, I didn't mean to hurry you up or to request anything. Just a
status update :).

Oh, I though you already have that part written as your screenshots
looked like it was working already. Sorry.

If you need help for a specific problem, just ask.

Ah, that's a problem. Maybe we should add highlighting_set_font() or
something which is called by editor_set_font() which then sets the
passed font only if there is no font specified for a specific style.
This problem only exists because I never expected we need to use
different fonts per style.
